[Royal Bank] Upgrade to RBC Visa Infinite Avion for 15000 bonus points and $0 fee for first year
Offer is available for current RBC Visa Rewards Gold card holders (but it doesn't hurt to ask in the branch) - on the phone they do not know about the promotion. Visa Infinite Avion, Visa Platinum Avion, Cathay Pasific Visa Platinum, British Airways Visa Infinite, and Rewards Visa Preferres cardholders are not eligible for the offer. Application must be submitted by April 30th.
Just called RBC to confirm that there will be no hard feelings (or retroactive fees) if I switch back to the original card or close the account altogether within the first year. Points are promised to appear in the first statement.
